Deep Cryo™ Treatment
All of the conductors used in our cables undergo Deep Cryo™ treatment before the insulation is extruded over the metals. Our research has proven that the conductor—and only the conductor— benefits from cryo-treatment. Materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC™), Teflon™, PE, and Silicon™ can all be adversely affected by cold-temperature annealing. Cryo-treating non-conductors and insulating materials can cause them to break down and become brittle.
The purity, size, and molecular structure of each conductor determine the specific temperature within the -186ºC to - a 196ºC range that we cryo-treat it at. Zavfino’s research into cold temperature physics has proven that the absolute lowest temperature is not necessarily the best for cryo-treatment.
I dropped the Prima OCC MK II into my DAC and in short order heard more detail, more nuance, a larger soundstage and more transparency. So impressed, I ordered 2 more to apply to other components.
The Zavfino Prima OCC MK II power cord has all the attributes I like in a resolving system and more. The sound of this cable is big and bold, but sensitive. Additionally, it is arguably the best made power cable I have seen. The packaging is amazing.
At about 26 hours of play on the Prima OCC MK II hooked into my DAC, I was stunned. Recordings that used to sound flat with limited depth and timbre now sounded like totally different recordings. The best way I can describe the transformation is going from Red Book CD quality to a remastered high-resolution file, but more so. My system is entirely different with the addition of this gem. The speed at which crescendos happen are massive. Imagining is pinpoint with a sound stage that is huge. Thrilled with the transformation. One of the best upgrades I have ever made. End of story.
I only received the cable on the 18th not 14 days as was stated in the email. So far I have not had enough time to evaluate,but sounds pretty good initially. I have only one problem and that is the connectors are pretty stiff within a few inches of cable on both ends making the length a bit shorter than I am used to. It seems you need about five inches of clearance on each end.
The Majestic phono cable is great so far, hoping for more time to evaluate as well.
The title says it all. You cannot go wrong with this cable. Great build quality, terrific packaging, and most importantly, sounds great! Comparable to power cords I have owned in the $3,000+ range. Not exaggerating at all. Great service from the US rep, Raymond, who is a pleasure to work with
